Lately, my three-year-old son has started saying to me, "You're my best mommy ever!" Tonight, I asked, "Exactly how many mommies have you had?"
"Two," he replied.
"Who was your first mommy?"
"It was you!"
"So I wasn't that great the first time around?"
"Yes, you was!" he laughed.
"But I'm better at it this time?"
I just love the idea of lifetimes of being this happy, trying to get it right with this kid, and each time, being his "best mommy ever".
